Obituary of Richard A. Feeney

Richard A. Feeney, age 77, of Shorewood, IL, passed away peacefully on Friday, January 25, 2019, at Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care in Naperville, IL, surrounded by his loving family.  Richard was born May 17, 1941, to the late Mildred H. (nee Brannick) and Michael R. Feeney in Morris, IL.  Raised in both Minooka and Plainfield, IL, he was a graduate of Plainfield High School.  Retired from Mahoney Environmental, he was most recently employed with the Minooka School Districts Transportation Department, where he enjoyed his daily school runs and will miss the school children that he admired so much.  Richard enjoyed watching NASCAR races and his favorite Chicago sports teams, the Bears, Bulls, Hawks & Cubs, games!  He had a wonderful sense of humor and loved spending family time together!

Richard is survived by his loving children, Dawn E. (Jeffrey) Starks, Diane M. (Daniel) Radmer and Tammy R. Feeney; two grandchildren, Kathryn E. Guy and Daniel P. Guy.  Several nieces, nephews, and many dear friends also survive.  
Richard was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Michael R. Feeney Jr., James C. Feeney and Gerald B. Feeney; niece, Michelle Feeney; and nephew, Scott Feeney.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at Edward Cancer Center in Plainfield, Edward Elmhurst Hospital and Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care in Naperville for their kind and compassionate care shown to Richard.
